Park is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The 25-year-old will sit for the second straight game with prospect Oneil Cruz receiving another start in the infield. Park has a .195/.297/.336 slash line in 45 games in his first taste of the big leagues this year.
Park isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds. Even though right-hander Tyler Mahle is starting for Cincinnati on Saturday, Park will get a day off. Michael Chavis will shift to third base while Cole Tuckers starts at the keystone.
Park isn't starting Thursday's game against the Cubs. Park will get a breather with left-hander Justin Steele starting for the Cubs in Thursday's series finale. Michael Chavis will shift to third base while Cole Tucker starts at the keystone.
Park will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Cubs. Michael Chavis' return from the injured list Tuesday looked as though it might close Park's path to regular playing time, but Ke'Bryan Hayes' (wrist) move to the IL on Wednesday should allow both Chavis and Park to see steady work over the final five games of the season. Park will remain in the lineup Wednesday for the 11th time in 14 games after getting on base at a .366 clip over the prior 13 contests.
Park is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds. The lefty-hitting Park will get a day off for Monday's make-up game with Cincinnati bringing a southpaw (Reiver Sanmartin) to the hill. Park filled in at third base in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Phillies for a resting Ke'Bryan Hayes, going 1-for-3 with two walks, a double and a run.
